Yummy BBQ

The be had a nice sweet sauce. Yummy potato salad and baked beans. We enjoyed it! We especially enjoyed the tender meat. Good prices and a good value.

I heard nothing but good things about this place but as it turns out sweet water is very overrated. This is not the standard in BBQ but maybe for this place.๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿฟ

Family atmosphere and good home country cooking. The pulled pork sandwich is delicious and my husband loves the ribs.

We visited the Sweetwater late on a Saturday afternoon after an all day event in the area. We clearly missed the lunch rush. Two tables were occupied but a regular carry out business was evident. My wife had the Sweetwater Platter (choice of three meats). I had the Catfish Platter. The catfish was hot and tender with some crisp edges.... More

We ate here for lunch and it was really good. I found this place through Tripadvisor and I am glad we decided to eat here. Food was reasonably priced and worth it. Another plus for us was the fact that it had the family owned restaurant feel to it.

Saint Robert has a limited choice of places for the business traveler to dine, so over the years I have tried most of them. Sweet water was OK, but not a place I would rush back to. The BBQ looked like it was cooked somewhere else and heated up in the kitchen before serving. The fried catfish was OK but... More

As we were away for 2 days in the middle of the state of Missouri we were looking for some local places to taste test. I had seen this place when doing a little research before our trip but really didn't give it another thought. Well someone in my daughters platoon mentioned they were going there for lunch so we...

I make it to St. Roberts about four times a year and I always make sure to stop at Sweetwater. Granted, I'm not a bbq aficionado, but everything I've had has been large portions and quite tasty - ribs, pulled pork, brisket, ham, turkey, and homemade sausage. If I were from Kansas City, I might be a little more picky,... More

The BBQ at this place was amazing. The ribs were fall off the bone delicious. Juicy, meaty, and the sauce was the icing on the ribs. Who know that dill pickle and fresh onion enhanced the flavor! Had the potato salad and vinegar based cole slaw. What a great combo. Oh and the portions will not leave you hungry!! We... More
